LOA story #1: THE BIG DONUT ... My age 6 first day of the first grade, standing in the hot lunch line. Alas, my last name started with an S which put me at the back of the lunch line going slowly in alphabetical order... I stood in the lunch line 3rd from the last person. Up ahead I could see a HUGE platter of home made donuts piled high. It was way up at the front of the line where all the kids in front of me were receiving their lunches on plastic trays. The donuts were all you could smell!!
I was SO HUNGRY that my stomach ached and I was very sad that there might be no donuts left by the time I got up there in front of them. So, I shut my eyes tight and I pictured a great big steaming hot donut as I pick it off an almost empty tray. I put it in my mouth and I took a bite. MMMMMMMM it was so good! I kept my eyes shut and moved step by step along with all the other kids in the lunch line. I took another bite. MMMMMMM it is so good too! And another bite and another bite until my BIG DONUT was all gone but the sugar left on my fingers. As I lick my fingers, another kid behind me poked me in the ribs and said, "HEY!! move up...will ya?"
I opened my eyes and took a step. There before me was the biggest sugar donut I had ever seen on top of 3 smaller ones on the big platter. Of course I took my big donut immediately.
The rest of the lunch was terrible. They had the most awful chocolate pudding made from soy powder I've ever NOT EATEN but my donut was just as good in every bite as the first time I ate it!
